Volunteer with CASABecome a Volunteer & Help Us Build Stronger Communities for People with Disabilities
Our volunteers play a vital role in our mission to build stronger communities for people with disabilities. As a volunteer, you will have the opportunity to work with CASA members on a one-to-one basis at all of our social events. You will be paired with a member and will spend your time with that member during each event.
This usually involves chatting and socialising with the member, as well as participating in activities like painting, bowling, and craft making.
The ultimate role of the volunteer is to facilitate and participate in the development of new friendships. This is the heart of CASA.
Roles & Time Commitment
What is the Role of a CASA Volunteer?
The minimum time commitment is just four hours per month.
Attend monthly social events
At the monthly socials, volunteers will be paired up with a CASA member for the afternoon.
Attend occasional meetings
The monthly meetings are an opportunity to assess the success of the socials, to collaborate and to learn.
As fundraising is necessary to support the activities of local groups, volunteers may be asked to assist from time to time.
One To One Care
Ensuring That No One Gets Lost In The Crowd
When CASA was first set up, groups did not pair people off together. It was noticed that some members got left out or lost in the crowd. One-to-one care ensures that all members get the attention or help they need.
It is not the intention that members will only interact with the person they are paired with. It simply guarantees that everyone will be able to participate fully in the activities, with the comfort of knowing they have someone at their side should they need them.
